Yes, it is soon to come. Should have some information very shortly. Here's a picture of one of the sample units from about 2-3 weeks ago...

Are metal tracks going to be available? The KV and IS tanks all had extremely heavy, very loose tracks. Those tight HL tracks look too Pz III'ish.

with the new stuff coming out....many thanks to James's hard work, looks as if HL and some others are waking up to the fact that KT's are not the ultimate tank and others are wanted. Looks like Sherman variants and KVs are going to be the main topic of RCU pretty soon. The KV -1 should be a very easy KV-2 and KV-85 conversion.

I'll be very intrested to see how close to scale it is to my resin phil edwardskv/1 and kv-2. They are excellent static kits with loads of detail!

Also, Bill, please post any info and more pics when you have the chance. Looks like Mmodell has some side shots also. There was a release awhile back about asiatam and pics of metal tracks and running gear for KV in 1/16 Thanks

When will the Brits be represented, Bill? They've had these under development for some time.

TXTANKER, yes that's KV track. IMPACT also makes KV track and sprockets in 1/16th...i think they have idlers too, but i'm not 100% sure.

they are available from currently from impact with a metal sprocket but not a metal idler.

I want a couple myself, forget the sherman (for now) although i still want a M-10 or M-36 or Achilles

I ordered a set from impact a couple of months ago and they did not have idlers or road wheels "available" then. i hope they are now.

I'm with you, the A1 can wait for right now. My wallet is already in a tight vacuum void where it hasn't seen green in a long time and the tanks just keep coming! LOL

OH man, this is starting to get real expensive, even for Heng Longs..

I just barely got my Jagdpanther stripped down, and now this. Well good news is it is probably 6 months away, so I have some time to make more shelf space.. Looks very nice.
